As if we really needed another reason to love Los Angeles in the summer, New York’s Hester Street Fair debuted their west coast outpost in the adjacent lots off Hollywood and Argyle. This hip outdoor market boasts a plethora of indie merchants selling everything from handmade leather accessories to adorable vintage and vintage-like clothes that would make the likes of Zooey Deschanel swoon. Add a roster of some of the city’s most popular food trucks, a beer garden, and locally made sweet treats and you’ve got yourself a lovely afternoon.
After grabbing a tasty lunch from Crispy Waffle & Frite, my mommy and I perused the couple dozen vendors and found some really neat stuff. A large blueberry lemonade from Barrett’s Lemonade and an hour or so later, we found ourselves indulging in Cake Bar’s delicious Red Velvet Cakepops. As I write this post, I am day-dreaming of Grace’s amazing Guiness chocolate brownies…I may just end up walking back down there to snag a couple as the event runs until 7p.m. (Sunday, 6/2 from 11am-7pm).
Hester Street Fair will take place once a month in Hollywood until September, but we’re hoping they stick around even longer than that. I was impressed with the amount of security, free space, and ample seating in the food area considering this is their first time doing this here. Good job on the planning! Easy access of the Metro Red Line (exit Hollywood and Vine). For more information, visit: http://www.hesterstreetfair.com/hollywood/
